With Supreme’s Scarface-themed capsule dropping this week, its been easy to overlook some of the other big announcements. The past seven days, however, have seen plenty of drop action of their own. Dutch streetwear titan Patta unveiled its latest collaboration with ASICS, meanwhile Copenhagen’s Wood Wood debuted the first collection from its “Double A” line and BAPE revealed a British-themed capsule available exclusively at Selfridges. One of the biggest stories, though, was Converse announcing a limited-edition release of its collaboration with British designer J.W.Anderson – two months ahead of schedule.
As always, we’ve put together a list of the best products that are dropping in Europe this week, as well as where you can pick them up and how much they’ll set you back.
032c “Peroxide” Capsule
Having initially dropped exclusively in-store at the Eytys flagship in Stockholm back in September, the “Peroxide” collection from German magazine-turned-brand 032c has now made its way onto the web store. The capsule includes a sweatshirt, shirt and a T-shirt as well as accessories such as a cap and hip bag — all hand bleached at the brand’s Berlin workshop. The “Peroxide” collection is available now from the 032c web store, with prices ranging from €39 EUR (approx. $45 USD) to €180 EUR ($215 USD).
Hi-Tec HTS74 Fall/Winter 2017 Collection
Sneaker brand Hi-Tec looks back at its 40-year legacy for the latest capsule from its premium HTS74 line. The latest drop features archive legacy, as well as athletic-looking boots that come with the brand’s lightweight Vibram RGS outsole. The full collection is available now from retailers including Slam Jam.
Wood Wood “Double A” Fall/Winter 2017 Collection
Copenhagen-based Wood Wood has used the “Double A” graphic for a while, but this is the first time that they’ve given the logo its own line. Consisting of basic pieces such as T-shirts, polo-necks and hoodies, the latest Wood Wood drop is a perfect selection of elevated staples. It’s available now from the brand’s web store, with prices ranging from 400 DKK (approx. $65 USD) to 1000 DKK (approx. $160 USD).
BAPE “Our City” Collection
The latest themed collection from Japanese label BAPE sees the brand incorporate British graphics and iconography onto classic pieces. The release contains shark hoodies, sweatshirts, tote bags, and T-shirts — including a reissue of the BAPE London commemorative tee released to mark its London store’s 8th anniversary. The full collection is available now from Selfridges’ stores in London, Birmingham and Manchester.
Eastwood Danso x OBS
Two young labels have joined together to produce a collection that they describe as being “about the place one is born and the places one has been raised.” The resulting capsule from designer Eastwood Danso and Berlin-based brand OBS features trench coats, side bags, long sleeve T-shirts, a ring, baseball cap, corduroy trousers and socks. The pieces are all available now from the OBS web store, with prices ranging from £24 GBP (approx. $32 USD) to £712 GBP (approx. $950 USD).
Aries “Aloha From Hell” Pack
London-based label Aries has continued its run of strong graphic-heavy packs with another capsule collection. Featuring three long-sleeves — one of which is also a high-neck — and two hoodies, the collection takes graphic inspiration from a range of sources, including motorcycling culture and biblical stories. The collection is available now from the Aries web store, with long-sleeves priced at £90 GBP (approx. $120 USD) and hoodies at £135 GBP (approx. $180 USD).
J.W.Anderson x Converse “Grid” Pack
Converse’s collaboration with J.W.Anderson was first unveiled back in June, and was slated to have a December release date. The footwear brand revealed this week that it was set to launch a limited number of the collaborative “Grid” pack of Chuck Taylor All Star 70s at a London pop-up on October 14. Coming in either black or white, the sneakers are set to retail for $120 USD per pair.
Patta x ASICSTIGER “Rose Cloud” GEL-Mai Knit
Dutch brand Patta has continued its long-term partnership with ASICS, with the Amsterdam-based label taking on the GEL-Mai silhouette. Originally designed as a trail sneaker, the GEL-Mai has been reworked into a “Rose Cloud” colorway, with Patta’s Script Logo interwoven throughout the sneaker’s upper. The shoe will be available at the brand’s London and Amsterdam stores on October 14, before being available online on October 16.
Off-White™ x Mytheresa Capsule
For its latest collaboration, Virgil Abloh‘s Off-White™ has worked with German e-tailer Mytheresa.com to produce a pack of womens sneakers and accessories. The star of the pack is undoubtedly the 3.0 sneaker, which comes in three new tonal colorways. The new drop also features three different bags. The collection is available from October 18, exclusively from the Mytheresa web store. Prices range from $149 USD to $729 USD, with the sneakers set to cost $495 USD.
adidas Originals AF 1.3 PK & AF 1.4 PK
As winter looms, adidas Originals has revealed two new ultra-technical sneakers for the colder months. The pack contains the AF 1.3 PK – a high-top shoe inspired by Germany’s elite tactical police unit – and the low-top AF 1.4 PK. Both sneakers feature technical elements such as waterproof-coated overlays and a hiking outsole. The sneakers are set to drop on October 19 from select retailers.
